And even if you do not have an "official" role amid all of this, one cannot underestimate the value of everyday advocates who seek to inform, educate, and inspire their friends and family, and other like-minded individuals about the importance and advantages of space exploration and colonization.
This can be everything from just having a conversation or watching a launch online together, to people who are artistically inclined writing inspirational stories or composing inspirational artwork. Every little bit plays a role in stirring us and motivating humanity to move forward.
For those that don't know, TMRO is an Internet-based space news and advocacy community with regular show hosts and podcasters, as well as a growing community of followers and contributors.
